E-commerce websites are an attractive target for hackers, due to the rich customer information that is stored, and any security vulnerabilities can be quickly exploited. Magento's Security Program is committed to maintaining the security and performance of its software so constantly monitors risks and releases security patches to address any vulnerabilities found.
We strongly recommend that all security patches be installed ASAP (it is a mandatory requirement to keep Magento up-to-date and/or install the latest security patches in order to host Magento on the Create Hosting platform).
